Celina Furman, University of Minnesota Psychology graduate student in the social area, recently published “Distanced Self-Talk Enhances Goal Pursuit to Eat Healthier.” in Clinical Psychological Science.  Furman’s research suggests that reflecting on one’s food decisions in the third person may promote healthier eating habits for those with goals to do so by making health-related features of the foods more salient. The University of Michigan issued a press release highlighting the publication as Furman, the lead author and a former Michigan lab manager, collaborated with Michigan researchers on the research.
